My favorite was the demo from making your own molds.
I can't say I have a favorite. I took away great tips and ideas from all of them that I did. There isn't one that I would have said I wish I hadn't gone to either.
Dominic (who does the Make Your Own Molds) is great--he ended up being the stand in for one of the demos I attended, when Earlene Moore fell and had to go to the hospital. He did a great job (assisted by Charity George) demonstrating how to use the lace molds that he and Earlene are developing. Very nice!
I agree w/ TexasSugar--I really enjoyed all the things I attended, and didn't feel I had "goofed up" on any of my choices. I learned a lot, although I've been told to make sure I re-copy/clarify any notes ASAP, which I still need to do. It's surprising how it makes sense at the time, then maybe for a week, then later you wonder what you meant?
The class w/ Barbara Evans on Oriental Strings was too cool. Enjoyed watching James Rosselle make flowers. Mary Moy's sugar demo makes me think maybe I CAN work with sugar (blowing sugar bubbles w/ a basketball pump!). Gelatin flowers were made to look so easy by Michelle Stedham. The Cake Shack, the vendors--already looking forward to next year!
Yes, I can't wait. This was my first ICES demo. It was educational and also my family had a good time.
It is a toss up between going to Cake camp or Reno Nevada. I may go to cake camp 2011 and Reno 2012.
I hope they have the ICES convention in California. I just love that state. Maybe Anaheim (disneyland) or Los Angeles or San Francisco.
Hearing your wonderful expereinces makes me want to cry, hahaha. I had to cancel mines!
Anyways, hope to see you all next year at Cake Camp. For sure I'll be there.
